The main advantage of using an MSSP as a small retailer is that your data will be more secure and in the event of a breach, your business operations will be much less effected if a business continuity plan is implemented.

Theft of data can be crippling for a small retailer. If customer data falls in to the wrong hands, you are liable. Liability could lead to legal action and, ultimately, the foreclosure of your business.

If a cyber attack causes serious disruption to your business and, for example, renders critical systems in your business inoperable, you are left with no choice but to cease trading. In turn, you are losing out the revenue that you could have gained on those days whilst still paying staff and overheads.

It is therefore recommended that a small retailer at the very least consults an MSSP for advice on how to secure their business.
